maybe back then you couldn't go direct, you had to do them in order. When
was this, 1989'ish I think.

Another ancient history type of question, unfortunately, but it is nagging

Back in the last century, The B50 had v1r2m0 on it. We received tapes
from another State agency. All was well. Even after they upgraded to
v1r3m0. Then, they upgraded to v2 and we could not read the tapes
(SAVOBJ format, as I dimly recall). We were told, by our IBM rep,
that we would have to upgrade to v1r3, then do a second upgrade. A
lot of foor dragging, and then we were told we could upgrade directly
to v2. A night I still remember.

Does anybody know if we were initially misled by our IBM rep
concerning the n-2 upgrade?

This doesn't matter a hill of beans. But, it sure created a lot of
heat at the time.
